Academics at Bethel University are rigorous. Professors are usually people who care about their students and their success. Be careful however, because some instructors are not always the most congenial and the grades they give can be given subjectively versus objectively. High return on investment for jobs in the area, mainly because of the reputation Bethel students hold for employers. Campus is beautiful; it recently went through a landscaping project. Being a christian private school, Bethel is not known for on campus parties. Athletics are always pushing forward and breaking records in and away from home, both housing and food have good reputation for the students (although both run on the spendy side), and student life is vibrant and always running an activity. Could do with more diversity, and more aid for student from lower socioeconomic status should be implemented.
